A hunter and fisherman, George Stabler sustained a L1 injury in a fall from a deer stand in 2011.George hasn't let his injury squelch his love of the outdoors, as he still hits the woods and the water on a regular basis. He also works out with a personal trainer three times a week and enjoys the friendly camaraderie in his Northeast Columbia neighborhood.

A Clemson University graduate, George holds a bachelor degree in agriculture and business and a masters in agronomy. He is employed with Dupont Pioneer as a technical information manager.

"I made the choice to keep moving forward,” he said of his adjustment to paralysis. “It took me about a month to realize that I didn’t have anywhere to go but up."
